Ace-Couturier, Varun Bahl discusses the most prominent trends of the year.
1) What is the cloth material that had a prominent presence in your runway collections of the year?
The fabrics in my latest collection range from ultramodern neoprene to hand-woven silks, heavy crepe to light-as-air tulle.To keep the collection simple and elegant sheer fabrics have had a prominent presence in my pieces. Layering with this, fabric furnishes a stylish appeal to the looks.
2) What is the trendiest Indian Wear silhouette of this year?
What has caught my eye this season is the gradual shift towards the A-line silhouette seen in well structured Indian outfits like tunics and full length skirts . This classic silhouette has been seen in a variety of my tailored flowy pieces.
3) A design that has been the cash cow from your collection. (The design consumers invest on throughout the season)
Embroidered bombers, applique jackets, and tunics embellished with variety of motifs have been the hot sellers of the season. They are also key pieces that mix naturally with the slim trousers and A-line skirts that are a part of my A/W collection.
